Students packed out the lecture theatre from 6 pm onwards
On Tuesday 11 October, four alumni speakers returned to the College to talk about their experiences of internships schemes and graduate placements. This speaker event presented a great opportunity for current students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, to get the inside knowledge on schemes with organisations from the NHS to the UN.
Over 130 students attend the event, with many arriving well in advance of the first speakers session to secure their space in the Managaement Lecture Theatre. Some late comers sat on the steps and others brought chairs in from seminar rooms. The speakers were, in order of appearance:
Sunil Thakar (Management with Economics, 2005) - Senior Consultant at Ernst & Young
Barbara Pusca (Management with Economics, 2008) - Commercial Finance Analyst at Telefonica
Ashish Mishra (MBA, 2003) - CEO, Europe Office at Strategic Asia, Consultant at Asia House and Visiting Lecturer at London Met Business School
Alexis Alexandrou (Economics & Maths, 2011) - Global Corporate and Financial Institutions Treasury Analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch
All students were set the task to create a profile on LinkedIn and add the speakers as connections, as well as signing up to the RHUL School of Management Alumni & Students group. A wine reception followed the presentations and general Q&A session, and many stayed until the event close at 10 pm. Podcasts of the presentations will be available to download shortly.
